Back and Forth.....

OK... I have been back and forth trying to decide how to handle my blog....
I have been allowing the computer to take up too much of my time and distract me from what God wants me to focus on: my husband, children and home. It has been TOO easy for me to "escape" from real life to the bloggy one! So, I have decided to obey God's leading and put the computer in it's place. I will still post randomly and I will visit other blogs, but ONLY in a certain amount of allotted time in my day... I will be spending VERY little time on the computer. I had taken my blog off.... but I don't think that is the point... I need to practice self-control... one of those fruits of the spirit, so I am opening it back up. For me this is about obedience, about trusting in GOD to meet my needs, for growing in character. In bloggy land it is too easy for me to get sucked up into the traps of attention, approval, procrastination, selfishness and wastefullness (time). My blog is titled Choosing Simplicity.... for me that means Choosing to eliminate distraction. Living life with an eterninty perspective: "How is what I am doing right now going to impact eternity?"

Have a BLESSED day, BE a BLESSING!

I noticed this morning that I couldn't get to the posts that my reader was telling me were there! I'm glad your blog is still available, but I understand where you're coming from. You and I have talked about this before. I think you've made a wise decision.

Hi... whenever this comment reaches you, I pray that you are in good health, spirits and balance. I've allowed a lot of things to come between me and my responsibilities and at times I cut back a little too much on myself. I trust that God will lead you as to how to handle this. This is my first time here and I'm sure I didn't stumble across this post by accident. I believe it to be a "God thing". I had to cut back on my blogging from work. It can be addicitve at times... Thank God for wisdom!!

Blessings!
